Pizza Problems// Weekend Recap

Ask anyone that knows me well what my favorite food is and their answers will all be the same....PIZZA!  If I had to choose one food to eat the rest of my life, this would be it.  Luckily for me, my husband shares the same deep love for those cheesy triangles.

In high school I would order a slice of pepperoni pizza every unfortunately just one slice doesn't do it for me. In college we adopted the phrase "pizza Sunday's" and we have kept up the tradition. I try not to eat it as often as I did once before because let's face it, my metabolism isn't like it used to be. But this past Sunday when Whit asked if I wanted to get pizza for dinner, the answer was yes!  We typically just order take out pizza to keep it simple, but this time we decided to make a date night out of it.

Whit and I went to one of my favorite restaurants in Charleston, Indaco. If you haven't been, you must! New restaurants in Charleston seem to pop up every other week and as much as I love trying new places, I can't stop going back to this one. Indaco is located on Upper King Street and has valet parking (which is huge plus in Charleston). Inside is quite charming with their exposed ceilings, white brick walls and perfectly styled book shelves. Their food is considered rustic Italian and is nothing less than amazing. From the house-cured meats to the pizza and pasta, Chef Michael Perez doesn't disappoint.

On to the good stuff.... I ordered the brussels sprout pizza which consists of Honey Crisp apple slices, fontina cheese and Pecorino Romano.  This seasonal pizza may sound strange at first but the flavors go ridiculously well together.

The sweetness of the apples paired with the salty brussels sprouts and savory cheese topping the thin crust finished with a wood fire can't go wrong.
Whit ordered the prosciutto pizza which consisted of ricotta, salsa verde, arugula and Pecorino Romano.

The warm, creamy ricotta topped with the salty prosciutto and crisp arugula made for a savory slice.
And what meal is complete without wine.....We sipped on this merlot blend recommended by our waitress.

Gran Passione Rosso
Everything was delicious and we satisfied our pizza craving for the week.

And as for the first the first half of my weekend, well it was spent cooking dinner with another couple and giving out candy on Friday, catching up with two of my good girlfriends over Mexican Food at this restaurant, and PB&J Beer at Edmund's Oast.....yes you read that right, and it tasted just like the sandwich!
